Watermelon Tequila Pops

Summa summa summertime!

I normally associate summer with lazy pool weekends, afternoon naps and relaxing with a fun read. This summer has been far from that. July has been on crazy/hectic/unbelievable month. Now that my Florida and Hawaii trips are over, I feel like everything is happening way too fast. I need time to slow down pronto.

Ice cream is great during the summer…but ice cream shaved ice is a million times better. As a kid, on hot summer days, I knew I was in for a sweet treat when my mom would grab the hand cranked ice shaver from the garage. As soon as she placed it in the kitchen, I

Last week I was at Disney World celebrating my 30th birthday. I’m from LA, land of dry heat. I could not deal with the high humidity, unpredictable thunderstorms, and brilliant sunshine of central Florida. Regardless of the crazy weather, I did have a lot of fun and quite a memorable little vacay (more deets about

Coconut Peanut Butter Popsicles

Coconuts and peanuts both have “nut” in their name, but neither are actual nuts. Coconuts are botanically drupes, better known as stone fruits. And peanuts belong to the legume family. They are closer in relation to beans and peas rather than tree nuts like walnuts and hazelnuts. I just wanted to share that little tidbit.
